PSC preparing to march in solidarity with #OccupyWallStreet
Update: The starting location for today’s (Oct. 5) community labor march in solidarity with the #OccupyWallStreet protest at Zuccotti Park has been changed from City Hall to Foley Square (between Duane St. and Center St.).
The meet up location for PSC members HAS NOT CHANGED. We will gather at the intersection of Warren St and Broadway at 4:15 PM, then at 4:30 PM we will march together to join up with the demonstration at Foley Square.
Members who arrive late should head directly to Foley Square. Look for the red signs that say “PSC Supports You.”
The Executive Council voted Friday (September 30) to endorse the labor support rally for #OccupyWallStreet on Wednesday, October 5, joining several other unions, CUNY students and community groups.
In endorsing the labor support rally, the Executive Council cited the convergence between the PSC’s campaign for a progressive tax structure and #OccupyWallStreet’s focus on the huge economic inequities in this state. We hope that in bringing strong labor support to the October 5 rally we can elevate the statewide campaign not to give millionaires a tax break when schools are being starved of funds, CUNY students are paying more, thousands of state workers are facing layoffs, and hundreds of people across the state are in desperate need after massive floods.
PSC members will gather at the intersection of Warren St. and Broadway at 4:15 PM before joining the rally. The event will run until about 7:30 PM. Click here for a flier. We look forward to seeing you there.
